• Policy Campaigns. 

Due to the relatively small number of signatures

 required to qualify a local referendum or initiative

 in California, it has become an expectation that any

 land use proposal that runs into organized opposition 

is likely to end up on the ballot and be subject to voter

 approval.  Over the last 15 years, we have worked on 

more than a dozen successful efforts to support high-quality, 

sustainable local development proposals - and oppose 

problematic ones. 

Our recent clients include major sports teams, 

affordable housing providers, a private college, 

community groups, retail shopping centers, 

and private developers of transit-friendly and 

infill commercial, residential or office proposals.

 In each of these efforts, we achieved our clients'

 goals by building grassroots support as well as 

communicating the benefits of specific proposals

 through paid and earned media.
